    I'm changing one of my picks, I'm taking Romero over Kingsbury and apparently I forgot to make one pick, I'm taking Ruediger over Taylor.

    Anyways, some notes from today's press conference:

    No it isn't. I couldn't care less if he is a good person. Just go back to kicking ass like you used to and we can all be friends again.

    Ellenberger- Keeps it standing for W.

    All the other main card fights are toss ups (Silva's motivation to fight is questionable these days).

    I'm so excited for 2 fights on the card. bader v jones and silva v belfort. I think belfort can pull it out. silva hasnt seen anyone with the speed and power of belfort. if he comes to fight he may win, if he starts showboating he's going to sleep. you also have to factor in if vitors 100%. he had the injury and hopefully it's fully healed

    Bader v Jones has the makings of an epic. Can't wait for that one.

    If Silva doesn't have that killer instinct in this fight, I will truly become a Silva hater. I miss the old AS.

    I hate Silva as of late, but if he comes in and makes vitor swallow some teeth, he'll be one of my favorites again.

    I'll wait for Dana's response.

    Nothing Silva has ever done has ever gotten me angrier than Dana's responses to Silva's actions.

    You mean to the weigh-in? He fucking loved it. Look a couple of posts back, I posted his twitter reaction.

    Dana cares about the hype, and nothing generates more hype than shit like that. Can you blame him for loving it? I'm sure if Silva gives another lackluster performance, he will get the smashing he deserves from DW.

    He didn't like the hype caused by Silva's utterly embarrassing the dogshit Dana was able to produce as opponents, and while I didn't see the weigh in, the pics smack of that attitude.
